Architect II 41-Decibel Built-In Dishwasher (Stainless Steel) (Common: 24-in; Actual 23.875-in) ENERGY STAR

  • ProScrub® option uses 36 targeted spray jets at the back of the dishwasher to help eliminate soaking or pre-scrubbing
  • ProWash™ cycle - takes the guesswork out of getting exceptional cleaning as this 1-touch cycle automatically selects, and modifies, the appropriate cycle
  • Whisper Quiet® sound insulation system built into the dishwasher that helps maintain a quiet home environment during operation
  • Heat dry option delivers faster and more complete drying by activating a recessed heating element during the drying cycle
  • Upper rack with SatinGlide® system and premium adjusters enhances the feel of pulling out the dishwasher racks, particularly with heavy loads
  • Fold-down row in lower rack enhances cleaning performance by allowing the tines to be laid flat, keeping them out of the way and allowing water to clean inside deep or wide dishes
  • 15 place setting capacity is your assurance that all the plates, glasses, and serving trays you use for entertaining will fit and get exceptionally clean and dry
